Sleep problems may increase risk of prostate cancer
The study findings reported about in this article have been getting lots of press. The study showed that those that report regular sleep difficulties have a higher risk of being diagnosed with prostate cancer. Remember correlation does not equal causation - meaning the study results do not mean insomnia causes prostate cancer. It may be that men with prostate cancer have more insomnia, perhaps from pain or frequent urination.
